CEMA Stages Technology Shootout at 23rd Annual CEMA Summit
Showcasing the significant features of their respective technologies, Certain, etouches, Gamer LLC and QuickMobile participated in a friendly competition at the Corporate Event Marketing Association’s (CEMA) 23rd Annual CEMA Summit. CEMA, the premier community for senior level event marketing professionals and trusted industry partners, staged the competition at its annual conference to provide the companies an opportunity to demonstrate the benefits of their technology, while giving Summit attendees the chance to vote on several criteria to determine the ‘winner.’
Companies participating in the battle included Certain, eTouches, Gamer LLC and QuickMobile.
“Our CEMA community encourages meaningful networking, the healthy exchange of ideas, sharing of insights and with our Technology Shootout, a respectful competition amongst friends,” said Kimberley Gishler, executive director of CEMA. “In the end, all our participating companies demonstrated they are all truly winners in their respective categories.”
CEMA Summit’s 2013 Technology Shootout was an extremely close battle, with the winner QuickMobile edging out the competition.
"We are very honored to win the Technology Shootout for the second year in a row," says Robin Jones, QuickMobile VP of Marketing. "Winning the Shootout with the next generation of our event app solution validates the demand for this technology and its use throughout the enterprise. We believe that organizations running hundreds to thousands of events will greatly benefit from having a simple master application for creating event apps on demand. We applaud CEMA for delivering innovative attendee experiences and being at the forefront of event technology adoption."
